The new Texas Ford Aquatics center, formerly known as Frisco Aquatics, is home to a nationally successful USA Swimming Club and serves the community through a variety of programming, including its SwimAmerica learn-to-swim, U.S. Masters, and aquatic fitness and therapy programs.
The new facility features an Olympic-size competition pool and a 25-yard warm-water training pool for lap swimming, lessons or therapy. Each pool is comprised of a modular stainless-steel vessel with a buttress-and-wall-support system, and utilizes a thick, PVC pool membrane. The pool's perimeter gutter system is also stainless-steel, with PVC grating.
Since the indoor facility is host to many events and high-level training, Texas Ford Aquatics elected to install an Evacuator chloramine-removal system that vents harmful pool compounds and provides cleaner air for pool guests. Additionally, 13 garage doors surround the facility and can be opened when desired.
